CLONING CAUSES CONTROVERSY ON CANINE CAMPUSES by Beatrice Beagle
While only sheep were involved, the Canine Community seemed unconcerned, perhaps even somewhat favorably impressed, as sheep are considered lesser mammals only fit for herding around or harrassing, but now that the possibility of pets being cloned (see http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/000216/ca_wired_1.html ) many on campus are considering the morals involved, the possibilities of dreadful unanticipated
RAMifications (dogs can pun, too), and the threat to our way of life. Swinging Sammy
Samoyed, a well known intercollegiate frisbee champion, was heard to say "This could be the worst thing since artificial insemination". Campus debates may develop shortly, we may yet get an opinion from the eminent Professor Houndog of Cowford.
The commercial possibilities of this procedure are already being exploited. See
Missiplicity project (team that is developing genetic savings and clone).
WESTMINSTER WINNER GRANTS INTERVIEW. By Chasit Upatree
"What beauty" "Such poise" "Melody in motion" were heard among the spectators at the nation's oldest and most famous dog show. And indeed she is a beauty to watch.
Gracious too, to cast a few remarks to this grungy reporter as he peered out from behind the assembled humanoid legs. "What a bore all this is" she muttered. "But one must live, you know. And soon I'll be back in sunny California and doing what dogs do--have pups."
